Venom is the next Superhero movie that comes out this year as we are now done with all other Marvel projects for this year. Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool and Ant-Man and the Wasp have really impressed us with what they had to show. Now Sony is also cashing in with our need for Superhero movies as Venom is the next project to come out and totally surprise us.
The two trailers that we have seen for Venom till now have been great, generating nothing but optimism for the movie. This movie will be giving a different origin story for the most popular Symbiote as he will be separated from Spider-Man and the Symbiote will bond itself directly with Eddie Brock. Tom Hardy seems to be playing a great version of Brock and we will surely be impressed with what he is offering in this movie.
Sony presented the Venom Panel at Comic-Con last night, and they showed the audience over there the exclusive footage of the movie. Unfortunately, we would not get to see any of that unless it leaks somehow, or Sony releases it worldwide, but we do have the description for the footage shown.
Comicbook.com’s Brandon Davis shared a description for the footage shown in Hall H. Have a go at it:
Eddie Brock enters a convenience store. He knows the lady here. She says he looks like s—. He’s not feeling well. She suggested to him previously that he meditate. At home, he puts a disc in his DVD player and while laying on the floor meditates. Flashes of him running through the woods kick in. He smacks his face on the couch. He pounds pills. He looks unwell and calls someone to say he’s feeling very sick. He awakens, startled. Later, he walks through an alley and sees Venom in the reflection of a car window before being flung against a wall.
Riz Ahmed’s character rules that human beings are disposable. Man and sumbiote combined is the future. He tests one on a man who is bent out of shape violently. Eddie is tested later. As a result, he brutally beats men in his apartment with Venom’s help. His motorcycle is sandwiched by cars but Venom holds them off.
Venom tells Eddie his previous life is over. Eddie doesn’t want to just hurt people. Venom emerges and talks to Eddie face to face. After Eddie’s body is bent and broken, Venom heals him and stands 10 feet tall. He holds a man up and licks his face.
Ahmed’s character is proud of his creation. Action scenes flash by. Eddie starts to come around on the power. His gal seems concerned about that. A woman throws spikes out of her back and into civilians at a market.
Venom’s arms turn into giant axes and he wipes out a slew of enemies. More action scenes. Venom fights Ahmed’s symbiote counterpart. Venom threatens to eat a man’s face off of his head who is bothering the woman in the convenience store. When he asks “What the hell are you,” half the face disappears and Eddie and Venom say, “We are Venom.” Then, he eats his head. Eddie emerges and says goodnight to the woman.
It does seem that Sony will do justice to the character this time, even if there is a major difference in his origin story. Spider-Man 3 completely ruined the character for the audiences and they deserve a good portrayal of one of the biggest villains amongst Spider-Man’s Rogues Gallery.
This movie is supposed to start a whole Venom-verse where we will probably get to see sequels and other characters like Morbius the Living Vampire, Silver Sable, Black Cat, Silk, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio after they also get their own solo movies.
Sony is putting out everything they have in the Spider-Man Universe. Other than that, they are also bringing us another Superhero franchise with Vin Diesel at the centre of it, playing Valiant Comics’ Bloodshot. While there is still time for Bloodshot to arrive, Venom is the most immediate project that Sony is pushing forward which will come out in just 2 months on October 4, 2018.
